Bin Collections are changing

The bin collection day is changing across Cardiff, affecting 75% of households, with the aim of making the city’s streets cleaner, writes Sophie Platt.

The changes, which take effect from the week of February 22nd, involve new working hours, now operating from Tuesday-Friday between 6am and 3:45pm.

With no scheduled collections on a Monday under the new system, it means collection day will stay the same, even in weeks when the Monday is a bank holiday.

There will be a collection on Good Friday, but when bank holidays fall on other days, the council will advise of any consequent changes.

You should have received a letter, explaining the changes and stating your collection day, whether or not it has changed. The letter also explains the aims of the new system:

  1. To have the streets cleaner with all waste removed from the streets before 3:30pm meaning they are there for a shorter time period.

  2. To have no confusion over bank holiday collection, with most falling on a Monday.

  3. There will be a specific crew taking care of the waste for flats and apartments to ensure no collections are missed.

The collection date for Rhiwbina remains Friday, but some neighbouring areas are changing.

Bins must be put out no earlier than 4.30pm the night before and no later than 6am on the morning of collection. Weekly updates on what bins are due to be collected can be found on the website, or on the app.

Some areas have been split by ‘operational boundaries’ meaning that some neighbouring streets may have different collection days.

Please follow the information on the letter that was delivered to you. If you do not receive a letter by 12th February 2021, then contact C2C on 029 2087 2087.
